CFR Analyst: Protests Over Koran Burning May Spread Beyond Afghanistan

The American embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan is on lockdown as protests rage in multiple Afghan cities over an incident the U.S. says was inadvertent burning of the Koran at a U.S. military base in Afghan.

"The Embassy is on lockdown; all travel suspended," the embassy announced earlier this week on its Twitter page. "Please, everyone, be safe out there."

The protests sweeping Afghanistan could spread beyond Afghanistan into other Muslim and Arab countries, says CFR's Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies Ed Husain.
